About Chinchilla Minimap

Chinchilla Minimap alters the Blizzard Minimap in a way to provide much nicer features and other niceties.

Allows changing of blip size, border style, shape of the map (doesn't have to be circular, or even square, lots of options are available), size, etc.
A more flexible north-east-south-west indicator.
Show your location coordinates.
Make the minimap very big temporarily (good for gathering or finding a tough-to-spot enemy).
Show the name of your location more flexibly.
Move Buttons
Move the buttons around the minimap to wherever you want (even off the minimap entirely).
Show which team-mate pinged the minimap.
Position the minimap and frames around it.
Range Circle
Show on the minimap where your range extends to.
Show / Hide
Show or hide various frames related to the minimap.
Tracking Dots
Change the dots on the map to a different set of images. Very handy, especially if you suffer from colour-blindness
Use the mouse-wheel to zoom the minimap and zoom out the map automatically after 20 seconds (or so).

    Looks like I had a bad download as that line contained a load of weird characters. Fresh install and all is well. Thanks :-)

    I reeeeeeally love this map addon, but I cannot get your quest tracker to play nice.

    I can move the position...and the moment I untick "Movable", it jumps back to where it was.
    I don't need it, but when I untick "enabled", it is still there. (Even after reload ui / logout)
    I do use "Move Anything" as well, because there are things I just want out of the way. 

    Drives me nuts, and I never used to have this problem before the latest patch. (I used Carbonite, but it's not updated yet.)

  • #1324

    I'm tempted to blame Move Anything as everything appears to be working fine on my end. Chinchilla and MoveAnything have always caused conflicts with each other. :/

    EDIT: Open MoveAnything's config with /move, expand the "Achievement and Quest" category at the top, and click Reset next to Objective Tracker and Objective Tracker Scale. That should sort it.

    Just a FYI, I have the same problem. Disabling ChinchillaMinimap allows me to move the quest tracker with MoveAnything, and make the change stick. Re-enabling Chinchilla breaks it again.

  • #1321

    I am also having the exact same problem, and it's really annoying having the quest tracker behind the map...

  • #1323

    I'm having the same problem with both SexyMap and this addon. Could it be something in Blizzards functions that is doing it?

  • #1317

    yah in version Chinchilla.version = "v2.6-25-g0ee2d58", that i still have on my Beta toon, the icons are normal sized.

  • #1311

    An issue that I've always had with Chinchilla and I'm not quite sure how to fix it is my quest log (on the right side of my screen) seems to be super high up, to the point if I try to put coords or anything directly under my minimap they cover up the first part of the quest log.  Is there a way to detach the quest log/objectives from the minimap?
